Stories of the Century

Show Summary

Jim Davis ("Dallas") starred as "railroad detective" Matt Clark in this 30-minute 1954 western series. Matt Clark's partner was a sexy, feisty, competitive young woman played by Mary Castle. Matt Clark eventually got a new partner played by Kristine Miller. A female lead in an action show was never done, and it was intriguing and fun. Its surprising no show followed this innovative precedent of a male and female duo as leads. Each episode focused on a different real life western desperado such as Jesse James, Butch Cassidy, and Belle Starr. Some young actors on the way up appeared as guest stars including Richard Jaeckal, Stuart Whitman, and Fess Parker. Jim Davis' character narrated each episode.
